With Open Arms, We Travel the Globe

The Global Initiatives program at Flintridge Sacred Heart includes spring and summer global service trips, and exchanges to member Round Square schools. 

Global competence is multifaceted and includes cognitive, socio-emotional and behavioral domains. Globally competent students understand that the world is a system in which their actions have consequences. Our students should bring their heads, hearts and hands to learning in the spirit of discovery. As such, a globally competent youth should learn to:

  • Investigate the world beyond their immediate environment by examining issues of local, global and cultural significance.
  • Foster empathy and an appreciation for a broad range of backgrounds and experiences; promote the breaking down of stereotypes and misconceptions and to embrace diversity; challenge viewpoints which perpetuate inequality.
  • Provide the opportunity to develop real world skills through planning, implementation and reflection.
  • Encourage students to step out of their traditional daily interactions and instill a lifelong commitment to service and advocacy.
  • Develop global citizens committed to the well-being of our planet and sustainability of global resources and with knowledge of globalization and interdependence.
